New Delhi:

McLaren's Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton believes that the Buddh International Circuit has a lot in common with the Belgian circuit Spa-Francorchamps.

Spa is regarded by many as the greatest F1 track currently in the season.

"The circuit is something of a revelation. Most modern tracks have a very similar feel; you find that the same driving style and rhythm suits them all. But the Buddh International Circuit is different: it has more in common with a great track like Spa than it does with any number of the more modern places we visit," said the 2008 driver's World Champion.

"It's got an incredible flow - basically, from turn four, a wide-apex right-hander that sweeps downhill, the track is just a series of fast, rolling curves which really allow you to put the car absolutely on the limit."

The 27-year-old Hamilton did not have a great race last year at the inaugural Indian Grand Prix, finishing seventh.

"I didn't have a particularly tidy weekend there last year: but I feel I've been driving better than ever recently - even if the results haven't quite shown it - so I'm headed to India determined for another good result. I think we'll have a car that's a match for the circuit and I can't wait to get out there and start practising on Friday."
